    High points: ambience, service, food presentation and taste. The bread, the Mahi and shrimp entree and Brussel sprouts were excellent. Low points: the pricing was set 10%-20% too high. In particular the salad and dessert were far overpriced for the portion size. Lastly, the "credit card" line item fee on our bill was an insult considering the premium pricing already charged for the meal. While we enjoyed ourselves, I could not in good conscience recommend PinPoint to my friends.

    The restaurant is much larger than we anticipated and has a neat vibe- the floors are amazing! Our table was strangely situated in the rear behind the bar area. The drinks were good but probably not $20 amazing good. The main course food and the Brussel sprout appetizer were delicious but the sides for the main courses were just ok. Our server was great and attentive. Overall we would probably try it again when we want to spend a lot on a meal.

    The food was really high quality, our server just wanted to take our order and get us out. Tried to take our appetizer plates multiple times and we had to keep saying we weren’t done yet. Overall, great food but don’t make reservations later then 6 so you don’t get rushed out.

    Worst fancy restaurant food in memory. Only the service and atmosphere saved it from being worst ever. I didn't think it was possible to ruin mushroom risotto and red-eye gravy that badly, but then I tried the vanilla ice cream, and was more astounded than before by the cloying perfumy taste of it. It's a meal I won't soon forget.

    The pinpoint delivered again! We started with raw oysters- they were so fresh and delicious! The beef tartare was very good although we liked a previous version better. The cheese plate and hummus were both great. For entrees, we had the wild mushroom risotto, the grouper, and the pork. Wow- they were all so delicious! Desserts were tasty as well. I have celiac and the kitchen and waitstaff did an excellent job communicating and I feel very safe eating here. Thank you, pinpoint for another outstanding experience!

    From the moment we arrived, we felt rushed. First, we were told that we had to order our appetizers and main meal at the same time. Then we were hurried to order both. The entree prices were $35-$42, which is high for the area. But we would have been okay with that if the evening was leisurely. Instead, for a Christmas Eve meal with our visiting son, we were churned in and out in an hour — at the price of $200. There was also a misunderstanding in which the waiter charged us for a $240 tip. That was corrected. But by then, the evening was a huge disappointment. Even more irritating, we walked by the restaurant an hour later and saw through the window that our table sitting empty. All that rush, it turned out, was for nothing.

    Bummed that my chicken couldn’t have white breast for chicken and my risotto rice was not cooked throughout, it was still hard a bit. And it seemed a little over salted. The appetizers were fabulous though.

    Supposed chocolate mousse was terrible. A teaspoon of mousse on a stale cookie. Chicken leg had a lot of fat on it. Bad small in the dining area Soup way too thick. Outrageous for this price point.

    We loved everything about our dinner! All of the food was amazing. The staff was friendly and welcoming and our server was very knowledgeable and attentive. We can’t wait to dine here again, especially since they change the menu often and use seasonal/local ingredients. Not an inexpensive night but comparable to other fine dining restaurants.

    The service, ambiance, and food were great. It was a great selection of appetizers, drinks, and entrees. I also need to mention that the on-line reservation process was fantastic; easy, straightforward, and email communication kept me informed of my reservation status. Will be going back very soon.

    Our meal was very good. My wife and I shared our appetizers and main courses. We both liked what we had selected. Service was also very good. The only detrimental aspect of the service and the ambiance was that the wait station is directly attached to the bar and open to the dining room. When a server or bar person has nothing to do, they are leaning on the end of the bar or leaning up against the counter of the wait station. Its' not their fault. I believe the wait station should have been configured differently. For the price and the reputation of Pinpoint, I would have liked to see the servers wearing a shirt with a logo and khakis vs. jeans and whatever shirt they walked in with. The music might need a bit of tweaking too. Disco was playing while we ate. Although disco is part of our era, it just didn't seem to fit with an upscale restaurant.

    Food presentation not good. My entree was bland and colorless. My dining partners agreed. Two had fish entree and one had pork chop which was more flavorful. Chocolate mousse desert was minuscule on a too large plate. Diners said they were sharing so server could have warned about size. Takeaway: expensive and value not there. Sad because I used to adore this place.
